  1. Brazilian jiu-jitsu ace Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza (10-2) and the always-entertaining Jason "Mayhem" Miller (21-6) may soon meet in a rematch of their June 2008 DREAM middleweight grand prix bout.

    In a report from Tatame.com, Souza's coach, Josuel Distak, said "Jacare" will fight for the newly vacated DREAM middleweight title at DREAM.9 on May 26.

    While Miller's participation wasn't guaranteed, Distak said he believes the "Bully Beatdown" host will be Souza's opponent.



    Souza defeated Miller by unanimous decision in June 2008 in the quarterfinals of the DREAM middleweight grand prix. Souza went on to defeat Zelg Galesic to earn a spot in the finals, but he was knocked out by Gegard Mousasi in the championship bout. The loss was Souza's first since a 2003 knockout loss to Jorge Patino in his professional debut.

    With Mousasi now moving up to light heavyweight, Souza will get another crack at the belt.

    Miller hasn't fought since the match with Souza, though he will meet the hard-hitting Kala "Kolohe" Hose (7-2) in the main event of Saturday's Kingdom MMA card from Hawaii.

    The loss to Souza snapped a streak of four-straight wins for the UFC and WEC veteran.
